    Okay we picked up 8 chicks 4 RIR and 4 New Hampshire Reds. lol These lil gals are eating and pooping machines. I have them in my brooder which happens to be a large glass tank with screened top. I know this is maybe not the norm but it has always worked for me with baby chicks and Birds. I have them sitting right next to my computer desk as that way I can watch them close.

    We had a small insect of some type get in the tank and was flying around near the light. I have never heard the kids laugh so hard in my life as they did watching those chicks try to catch that bug.
